Anyway... the name of the show has not been released but with a little detective work it does not take rocket science (or a badge) to find out what team is soon to become the next para-celeb. The Press release is dated 1/6/2009 if you want to read it, here is the link.
Paranormal Cops? really?
The Pros- This team has had background checks. They have a concept of how to conduct an investigation. They are in law enforcement so we know they are not in this to rob people at least. What better to beat out those pesky plumbers than real life police officers. I would much rather have a cop in my house than a plumber, well unless my toilet is broken.
The Cons- Viewing the Paranormal Cops website found here
http://www.chicagoparanormaldetectives.com/ They seem to have a good background in what they do for a living, but where is the "paranormal" background? It's easy to throw some cops in a haunted location and see what they do, but really. What do they do? The website also suggests that they are TV ready. They also suggest that because they work as police officers/investigators as a career they have no room to make false assumptions with cases. Is this true? For now it may be, but we all are aware to how TV changes good groups. Those that do not change, well, they get cancelled and their hopes and dreams are shattered. The team is made up of highly trained police officers (we hope they are the hot kind!?) Get to know the cast and crew on their Biography Page a couple of them seem to have a background in TV and production. Oh, and they have a psychic. All creditable teams have a psychic right? (lol) the Paranormal cops psychic has even written a book.
So folks, here we go again. I hope they pull out the 357's swear a lot and pop a cap in a ghosties ass & lock'em up, for the sake of TV of course. ( we can only hope)
We will sit back, watch if this show makes it or breaks it. We will watch to see if these ethical police officers become network slaves, quit their dayjobs and sell their souls to make that almighty dollar (for other people) Not bashing this TV show, not one bit. But it seems to be a new thing in 2009 with Paranormal TV. Who can outwit, outsmart and jerk the jacket of the general public. Thanks to the networks, we are all realizing that there are simply a lot of stupid people out there. But, we hope for the best and hope for a watchable TV show that won't make us yell at our television sets anymore. As we sit and watch Paranormal gimmicks become born what can we do? I for one am tired of watching people with limited background and paranormal knowledge jump on TV and claim to be an expert of some type. But, then again there is a good thing. This team is not linked up with any half naked headstone humpers. So, that's good... right? Thanks A&E... we will be watching.
Now, on to Sci-Fi
It seems the Joni Loves Chaci spin off of "Ghost Hunters" is making a come back and with new people. There are of course the oldies but we have a new goodie?
Well, this person is just an odd fit for me. Brandy Green. I wonder why they picked her? And not the ultra slutty bitches that are out there on the internet claiming to be paranormal researchers. Was it because she has a proven track record in her whole 24 years of investigating with "Pigs Eye Entity Research" aka PEER http://www.pigseyeentityresearchers.com/ ?
On to more 2009 TV ?
Um, I won't say much because this has been rumored to be the "bomb diggity" for many years now. I have yet to see it happen. lol This old rag.
Good Ol' George Noory to host TV show.
"Dead Reckoning" to debut Para-Documentary
And the town kind of seems "Okay" with it? Click here to read article
And the newest and latest in Paranormal TV is "PARANORMAL HIGH"... yeah, like HighSchool Musical ! I hope they sing, dance and get adopted one day. Fact: I Don't know if it's a TV show, but it should be, everything else in this stupid world we call the "paranormal field" is a show. Might as well.
What the fuck?
Producers of "Laguna Beach" and "Paranormal State" are casting three hot friends to spend the night in a haunted location as a pilot for E! Networks.There are a few things in life as exciting as experiencing the terror of investigating the paranormal and haunted places. Most who dare take on the spirit world are experienced paranormal warriors, who have prepped, studied and armed themselves for battle with the nether world. Enter the HOT GIRLS armed with the latest in scientific paranormal equipment (and the hottest new shoes.) These cute girls take on the scariest, weirdest, and most bizarre situations with the best intentions to uncover the truth, give peace to the spirit and not to freak out and leave screaming. Their mission a simple one: Investigate and look Fabulous doing it. Each episode the girls will spend the night in a rumored haunted place surviving with only with their wits, energy bars, the latest in paranormal equipment.
So, in closing. I'm still not a fan of Paranormal based TV shows. But, the rumor is some of the "Ghost Divas" are filming a pilot. HAHHAHAHAH Fact, Fiction or does that make you nervous? Hummm?
Fuck it all!
